by noreply@blogger.com (Jing-Jing Law) @ ・S・H・I・Z・U・R・A・W・R・

Hello peeps! Sorry for the lack of updates. My laptop charger broke so I haven't been able to use it and get to my blogging files *sadface*. However, in the mean time I have been working on a mini project on my boyfriend's laptop: a video! Somewhere in the middle of my trip in Japan, I suddenly thought "hmm...why not take the blog to another level and film some footage!". I am bit nervous showing it because I am a new to this but I hope you guys like it. Enjoy!


Don't forget to like and subscribe LOL

The majority of the clips were filmed in Kagoshima. We also visited Fukuoka and Kumamoto so some clips from there may pop up too. It's been almost two months since my holiday so I'm forgetting which clips were filmed where (^^")

I don't know if this is going to be a regular thing but I wanted to do something different. Have to admit, sometimes I find sharing photos on here a bit of a chore. Especially now that it's so easy to share a photo on Instagram! With the blog I need to get it off my camera or phone, resize and tweak it a little, then finally it can be uploaded. It seems like such a long process sometimes...and then the dreaded blogger's block starts to creep in! I needed to add something new into the mix. Some movement. And so this video was born!

Don't worry, I'm still going to upload photos on here. I still have a load to show once I get a new laptop charger! However, videos might start popping up now and again to keep things fresh. I have some clips from Hong Kong too which I may make a video in the future...

Videos on blogs. Yay or nay?

Blinc Kiss Me Mascara, Dark Brown, Tube | AlconeCompany

Blinc Kiss Me Mascara, Dark Brown, Tube | AlconeCompany


Alcone Company

Instead of painting your lashes like conventional mascaras, blinc mascara forms tiny no-smudge, water-resistant tubes around your lashes. Once applied, these mascara tubes bind to your lashes and cannot run, smudge, clump, or flake, even if you cry or rub your eyes. Whether your daily activities take you from the office, to your sweaty workout or out to dinner, your lashes will look as good in the evening as they did when you first applied blinc in the morning. blinc mascara will add volume and length to give you a radiant natural look that lasts all day. Only when you are ready for removal, the tubes will effortlessly slide off your lashes into your hand without the use of a harsh makeup remover. All it takes is the combination of warm water and gentle pressure, from your fingertips, a washcloth or water pressure and the tubes will slide off your lashes effortlessly. Upon removal you will actually see the tiny mascara tubes in your hand! Great for sensitive eyes, mascara from blinc has been clinically tested to be non-irritating making it ideal for contact lens wearers and active people in search of a mascara whose look, hold and ease of removal is without compromise.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Gel Touch Foundation Review

by Thu @ Face Made Up – Beauty Product Reviews, Makeup Tutorial Videos & Lifestyle

Being a massive fan of the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua and the Perfection Lumiere Velvet, I just knew I had to get my hands on Chanel’s latest foundation offering, the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Gel Touch Foundation, particularly as I had heard that it offers a light coverage. Packaging Housed in a chunky, plastic yet still very sleek (com’ on, we’re talking about Chanel here) black and cream mirrored compact, branded with the two infamous intertwined ‘C’s, the foundation sits protected under a thin layer of mesh fabric (which was in turn protected by a removable plastic, safety seal) covered by a flip up lid. Nestled between the lid and mirror is a soft, sponge puff applicator, Chanel branded of course. Formulation This is my first dalliance with a cushion foundation so there was somewhat an extra element of excitement here, given how much cushion foundations have taken off in the western world over the last couple of years. This particular formulation from Chanel is described as an aqua-gel texture yet has a consistency so thin, it’s like water (not surprising as it apparently made up of 56% water). The finish is designed to give ‘a subtle tint’ and a ‘sheer, […]

Tape Shape Contour Concealer Review & Swatches

by Thu @ Face Made Up – Beauty Product Reviews, Makeup Tutorial Videos & Lifestyle

SHOP THIS POST Finally, finally, FINALLY managed to get my hands on the Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer after being out of stock consistently for absolute months since it’s launch last year. It’s not like I live anywhere remotely near an ULTA store so I’ve had to stalk the Tarte website sporadically (but have never been quite fast enough – you snooze, you lose right?).  If there was ever a product I’ve wanted to get my hands on so desperately (aside from the Master palette by Mario and the Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette – and I totally blame YouTube – #youtubemademedoit), it’s this. Let’s start with the exterior. The packaging is rather chunky compared to its peers but that’s because it houses the fattest doe-foot wand applicator I’ve ever come across. Many people like it but I’m rather indifferent to it as I don’t apply it straight to the face. That’s far too much product, for me personally. Trust me, a little goes a very long way with this concealer. I tend to ‘dab’ the wand onto the back of my hand (using it as a palette to mix the colours) and pick up the product from there. It’s always easier to […]

信愛成癮 = 浪費眼淚 ... ❤

信愛成癮 = 浪費眼淚 ... ❤

by noreply@blogger.com (Uni FrankieRose Uni) @ FrankieRoseUni ... ♥



I have a girlfriend who came across a conversation while going through her boyfriend's phone ... 

A conversation between her boyfriend and his ex-girlfriend. 
"Do you miss me?" has appeared in the conversation. The song, <Lay Me Down> was sent which sent to her previously and she thought it was their song. "Can I Lay By Your Side // Next To You ... You // And Make Sure You're Alright // I'll Take Care of You ..." This was the part that was sent to both of the girls. 

When she confronted her boyfriend, the conversation has been deleted. 
And her boyfriend said it was just normal and casual conversation. He sent the song for fun. He didn't mean anything like that. 

She asked is there possibility that you guys  getting back together? 
He said NO ... Because she is engaged. 

There was more messages apologizing that she (ex-girlfriend) texted him. "I must be out of my mind when i sent you this text ... But no worry. I just want to find out whether you are doing fine." "Do you miss me?" Every betrayal started somewhere. Somewhere like this. 

From a guy's perspective, you will think that it is normal by the way they greet and talk. 
But from a girl's perspective, it is never like that. It is more than that. A girl will never text her ex for casual conversation. There must be something that she wants from him. Either this or that ... 

In the first place, she thought it must not be a big deal because he kept the conversation in his phone. But with her declared previously that she isn't going to check his phone. It was deleted later on. They fought and argued about the fact that he is allowing her to stick with him all the time and seeing every friends of him. 

It wasn't a cheating scene ... 
It was more on a disrespectful act to her. She felt disappointed. She felt betrayed. She felt disrespectful. She couldn't get through the fact that it was just a normal conversation. She wanted to leave ...

我都已經 選擇原諒你再愛一回

The girl chose to let it go. 
She didn't want to dwell on it anymore. It affected her way of thinking in the relationship as well as everything she does in her normal routine. 

What was he thinking? What if he was the one who found out this kind of conversation in her phone? Will he take her side and say the same exact thing he just said to her? 

Don't cheat! 
If you are unhappy, just leave. 

愛你浪費時間 恨你浪費眼淚
相信你的誓言 還不如去相信 這個世界上有鬼
當你表演可憐 甚至掉下眼淚
想挽回 想得太美
明天還在等我 麻煩請你靠一邊

If thing ever happens, just tell yourself this. 

我懂愛不是無所不能 但至少愛了就有可能
地球是圓的 愛會圓滿的 何必在乎沿途有多曲折

害怕愛了結局很殘忍 到最後變成了愛無能
這樣的人生 太不痛癢了 我才不要這種平安喜樂

The girl is me.

Growth in Grooming

by margit @ Katrinatique®

Published February 2016 by Katrina Rubin: History reveals that men’s skin care is a concept that dates back to ancient Egypt. This was due to their desire to attract a mate and be prominent in a competitive society. Today, believe it or not, these goals are still shared by a large percentage of the male population.

Stages of Relationship Growth ... ♥

by noreply@blogger.com (Uni FrankieRose Uni) @ FrankieRoseUni ... ♥

Hello guys ... :)
I just realize on the right-hand side box, i haven't changed the age and I'm 21 again, YEAH!!!

No matter how independent you were, once you are in a relationship, you become dependent. 
I used to travel alone from A to B happily, now i blame him for not sending or coming with me even just 10 out of 100 occasions. I used to be emotional independent that hardly any person can influence my mood, now within 3 seconds it may charged with anger, frustration, and irritation from bickering or argument with the other half. I used to have and enjoy my time alone, now i would rather have some activities together. I used to ... Tough!

Nature makes sure we fall in love with the most incompatible person in the entire universe ... 
I found distasteful for whom driving a noisy car. I have an aversion to whom smoke. I found it absurd that someone doesn't know how to take care of his health and how to manage his own daily chore. The statement above is true. Factual! I'm falling in love with whom i have never thought of having a relationship with before.

Relationship Growth Stages - Power Struggle Stage 
Here is when we focus on differences & flaws of the other half. There are 2 ways most couples deals with the Power Struggle Stage: 1. Break Up or 2. Survive. I would say the 3rd one is Avoidance. Once they realize the differences and flaws, they avoid. In order to go through this stage, couples need to have in mind that the outcome of this whole relationship is to make things work. Below are some useful tips to overcome this stage for you guys:-

  • accept and appreciate each other’s differences
  • learn to share power, and realize that using force will never get you what you want in love
  • realize who you are and what you have (as a couple)
  • give up your fantasies of harmony without struggle
  • surrender to life just the way it is
Related Articles: The 5 Stages of Relationship 

"Because we are in a relationship and they are ..." 
This is how we take granted of things. We think that in a relationship means we can stop putting effort in talking, communicating, learning about each other or even take the other half into consideration. People may get better treatment from your the other half than what you get from your the other half. People will have the chance of trying even though things look unworkable in the first place and because you are in a relationship with him, your unworkable things get thrown into dustbin straight away. Listening to the other half become a huge and tough task. We start to wish that things can get our way and we start to force the other half to change. 

Friend's advice is great in how to deal with this kind of behavior or attitude from the other half but those are not able to solve problems. Because the problems are US. Once one party stop making effort, nothing will move. Relationship growth will come to a stop as well. 

Be positive.

Keep calm and blog on.

by noreply@blogger.com (Monika RocailleWrites) @ Rocaille Writes

Long time no post, dear readers! I'm hesitating to write this update; however, I've always been striving to share with you exactly what's on my mind, in the hopes it may be at least a little useful for someone. This is probably the most difficult thing I've ever written, but also maybe the most necessary. So, here goes - if you're interested in just my beauty reviews, this post is not it - so check back soon for regular service.

Life's been a bit difficult for me these past few months. I know you guys are probably thinking 'Duuh! You've just had a baby!', but I'm not really talking difficult as in 'have no time for anything - feeling tired' kinda way. Before Julian was born, I'd been expecting that and I *think* I'd been mentally prepared, but what I hadn't been prepared for was feeling utterly lost and not like myself. Call it what you will - mood swings, baby blues (I'd hesitate to call it postpartum depression since I don't think it got as severe as to be diagnosed as such), existential crisis - the point is, I've been really struggling lately.

There were days and now thankfully just episodes during the day when I feel unexplicably sad, and worried about the baby, and somehow empty inside, like a hollow husk of a person I used to be. I can't wait until the day is finally over because it seems like such an ordeal to get through, and I'm so frustrated and angry at myself for even thinking it. At the same time, I dread the night time, because if he - and I - keep waking up again and again and again, I know that the next day is going to be even harder. You know how other mothers say - "Oh my gosh, time flies, they grow up too quickly!", and here I am, thinking "No, not at all, the days drag on without end, I can't wait for this to be over - but will it ever be over? Will I ever feel normal again?'.

Before you all write it in the comments, I AM incredibly grateful to have Julian in my life - a beautiful, happy, healthy baby - but at the same time, I feel broken and undeserving of such a blessing. Every little challenge I face with him makes me think I'm a bad mother, and he'll suffer because of my stupidity or lack of insight. Reasonably, I KNOW these are ridiculous thoughts but oftentimes I cannot help thinking them, and I am so mad at myself that I can't just snap out of them.

The reason I've decided to write about my state of mind is because I think that we women don't talk about the postpartum recovery process enough. We gush about the cuteness of our babies and brag about having our figures back while glazing over the more challenging facets. Obviously, we don't all struggle this much as new mothers, but some of us do, and I believe it's important to acknowledge it so that we don't feel so insane - and alone.

I was fortunate enough to have a very easy pregnancy and a standard, safe delivery, but now, at 4 months postpartum, I'm still not completely well - both mentally and physically. The ailing hip/ groin area I was experiencing towards the end of my pregnancy has not gone away, and it's since been joined by a backache. My hair is falling out so much I decided to chop it all off. I'm not just 'not sleeping enough' - at the lowest point when Julian was waking nearly every hour at night I was so sleep deprived I didn't even feel human anymore. I still feel weak and sluggish, and there's absolutely no way I feel up to working out to shed those extra pounds or to 'get my body back' - at the moment, I couldn't care less to be honest, and heading out for daily strolls is about all I can manage right now.

Well, enough of the pity party; I just wanted to say that the going's been rough, but I do see the light at the end of the tunnel. We've been sleeping better lately, and I think that maybe my hormones are becoming more balanced, and I'm starting to feel like myself again. I've also been taking more magnesium and it seems to be helping. The point of all this rambling is that I feel that I'd like to start blogging again. Writing is still my passion and I think it's something I need to do for myself, now maybe more than ever before in my life. However, I do realize it's not going to be easy, mostly due to time constraints - I'm not going to lie though, I know there will be days when even if I do have the time, I just won't have enough energy to write. And I think that's okay too.

To sum it all up, I'm back - sort of. I'll do my best to post, but I'm not going to be posting as often as I used to in the past. The reviews may get shorter and not as thorough. Photos may not be as plentiful. At times I may even not make any sense, and I apologize in advance. But carry on I shall, and carry on I will. Thank you for sticking with me, friends - I'm clicking 'Publish' before I chicken out.

The Power of Words ... ♥

by noreply@blogger.com (Uni FrankieRose Uni) @ FrankieRoseUni ... ♥


We all have different characters. 
Some of us remains calm and analyze the situation in a quarrel, some of us would like to win the quarrel by verbally abuse the other party without realizing it, some of us would suck in up and keep to her/himself. Which one is representing you?

I'm never good at fighting or making conversations.
I'm the one who always wish "I should have said that just now ..." after quarrels / incidents. When i'm in an quarrel, i couldn't think straight or analyze the situation; there would be a lot of "Go to hell, please.", "How many million people died everyday and why aren't you one?" kind of thoughts swamp into my minds. But i never said it out because it is pointless and it couldn't win me the quarrel. I ended up shut up and suck all of it up and it became one of the many suspended feelings i have had. Suspended feelings will come out uglier at a later stage and made you sensitive towards trivial.

I have hurt him with my words.
And that's the first time he cut off my call without saying goodbye when we are in the midst of arguement over the phone. I knew he will be hurt but in order to win the quarrel, i said it out. I was in a cab. Like usual, he pretends fights was never happened afterwards and i couldn't be sure if he will ever forget it. Everyone is fragile. They may forget what you said but they will always remember how you made them feel. It must be a bad feeling.

Don't ever try to retort them with that kinds of words they use.
No one likes to lose. Everyone likes to win and especially in proving their points across. They may resort to humiliate or defy your behaviors, we have to win the quarrel in a higher level of intelligence. Winning the quarrel doesn't mean speak louder or successfully humiliate the other party in return. Find out the problem and solve it. If the other party still continue, it's time for you to leave (the scene).

Grow up. Don't let anger get the better of you.
I'm bad at controlling my temper when there is a quarrel and always say something irrelevant in order to win the quarrel. I'm learning to be more rational in an argument, learning to be not let anger get the better of me, and learning to bear the consequences of my words. We never know whether we have hurt them with our words unintentionally.

Ask yourself / myself.
If the other party have died because of what you said, how would you feel?
If someone said this to me, how would i feel?

Milk Makeup Review: Matte Bronzer, Lip + Cheek, Highlighter & Blur Stick

by Thu @ Face Made Up – Beauty Product Reviews, Makeup Tutorial Videos & Lifestyle

SHOP THIS POST I was recently able to get my hands on a few of the products from the hip and rather hyped-up US makeup brand, Milk Makeup. Selecting which products to get my mitts on first was a definitely a challenge (if only money was no object) but I managed to narrow it down to four: the Blur Stick, a matte primer; the Matte Bronzer; the Lip + Cheek, a multi-use tint, and the Highlighter. These particular four face products come in fun, chubby style, twist-up stick packaging which means that they are not only practical to carry around on the go but they can also be applied directly onto the face without the need for any makeup brushes or tools. The only slightly annoying feature is the double cap but I assume that the inner cap is to further protect the product and possibly stop it from drying out? So yes, you have to remove the main outer cap, then the inner cap before you get to the product. If you’re on the go, this can be annoying and I wouldn’t be surprised if one or both goes AWOL especially as they are both clear. Blur Stick The […]

Video: One Day in London

by noreply@blogger.com (Jing-Jing Law) @ ・S・H・I・Z・U・R・A・W・R・

Hello again everyone! Today I bring to you something a bit different. A video! I decided to film what I got up to when I went into London for the weekend just over a week ago.


The clips in the video are pretty much in chronological order. I was with the boyfriend for the day and whenever we go into Central the first stop is always food! Actually. Food is always the first stop no matter who I hang out with. We ended up eating at Dirty Burger because the Korean BBQ place we wanted to originally visit wasn't going to be open until 6pm and it was in the afternoon. Total schoolboy error for not googling if the restaurant was open or not!

Next stop was the Alice in Wonderland Exhibition at The British Library to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the story. The exhibition is free and I believe it's staying until around April. If you love the story and are interested in illustration I recommend checking it out! It's pretty cool seeing and reading about the different versions of Alice. The only disappointing thing about the exhibition was that no cameras were allowed for half of it.

The final destination was Lumiere London with a bit of a hiccup along the way. I left my filter and lens cap at Dirty Burger so we had to go back there first because seeing the light festival *face palm*. Lumiere consists of various light displays and installations that are dotted around London. We didn't manage to see everything because it got really cold as it got later into the night. Also, some displays were a bit...underwhelming. However, there were some pretty awesome one to make up for it. My favourite was probably Les Voyageurs (The Travellers) by Cedric Le Borgne. My video does the installation no justice at all but it was truly beautiful in person.

And that conclude what I got up to in the video! I hope it's enjoyable to watch. I want to set myself more projects like these and hope to make more videos. I seem to be making them at a rate of one per year (my previous and first ever video was about Japan which you can see here). Hopefully that will change!

What did you get up to on the weekend? Mine wasn't as eventful as in the video's as I stayed in haha.

我喜歡 簡簡單單享受孤獨的時刻

我習慣 遊走在城市間忙碌生活著
我過的 也許不是別人真的能懂的
我愛上 工作後想著吃什麼的快樂



看著人來人往 有點好奇
他們的故事
一個人在麵館角落裡
美味慢慢嚐著



有時候 一個人 不一定就不快樂
悲與歡 離與合 擁有才算是獲得
我和你 一首歌 咀嚼不完無憾了
關於愛 的人生
努力過用心過才值得
(勇敢過珍惜過就值得)



也許你 會覺得我過的有一點寂寞
可是我 有一個叫做自己的好朋友
我翻閱 一幕一幕的人生平凡感動
我心中 收藏屬於自己最燦爛天空

Revlon X Chloe Morello Sculpt & Highlight Contour Kit Review & Swatches

by Thu @ Face Made Up – Beauty Product Reviews, Makeup Tutorial Videos & Lifestyle

Whilst I am a fan of subtle contouring (trust me my round face needs it), I’m not totally mad on highlighting, not on an everyday basis anyway. So when yet another drugstore contour and highlight palette was released towards the end of last year, I was hardly jumping up and down with unconfined excitement. This one in particular is a collaboration between mainstream giant Revlon and Aussie beauty Youtuber, Chloe Morello. Put them together in an equation and you get the Revlon Sculpt & Highlight Contour Kit (only available in Australia and New Zealand I believe). So why did I pick this particular kit up I hear you ask with curiosity? Well nothing like a promo to push me over the line and add this to my basket. I’m talking about the Priceline, 2 day, 40% off all cosmetics promo which I believe only happens a couple times a year (don’t shoot me if I’m wrong). Not going to lie but cosmetics and skincare is pretty expensive in Australia so when you see a fairly big discount, you make the most of it. The  Revlon Sculpt & Highlight Contour Kit comes as a quad rather than the excessive-for-everyday 6-pan palette, […]

Hourglass GIRL Lip Stylo Review

by Thu @ Face Made Up – Beauty Product Reviews, Makeup Tutorial Videos & Lifestyle

Hourglass recently launched a 20 strong shade line up of their newest lip addition, the GIRL Lip Stylo. Backed by a sassy, female empowerment campaign, each shade represents an admirable trait. The shade selection is wide yet maintains conventionality. From light, warm nudes right the way through to a deep, vampy plum. Initially I did a bit of a double take when I spotted the GIRL Lip Stylos as they look suspiciously a lot like the brand’s existing La Femme Nude collection. Same chubby stick styling, same packing, all that was different was the colour range and the name. Upon closer inspection, the new GIRL Lip Stylo range is said to be a ‘formula blends modern colour with luxurious hydration for a lustrous finish’ created with ‘a hydrating blend of shea butter, jojoba, mimosa and sunflower seed’. The original La Femme Nude on the other hand is more about full coverage colour with a satin finish (not to sure about the ingredients though). I picked up two, nude (of course) shades: Peacemaker, described as a peachy nude but I happen to find that it veers more on the side of a warm pink, and Futurist (worn in this video), described […]

Valentine’s Date Night Makeup: Soft Halo/Spotlight Eyes

by Thu @ Face Made Up – Beauty Product Reviews, Makeup Tutorial Videos & Lifestyle

Jumping on the commercial bandwagon that is Valentine’s Day, I have created a subtle soft halo or spotlight eye look which is a technique that strategically places a lighter eyeshadow in the centre portion of the eye, sandwiched between a darker colour on the inner and outer third of the eye. This is a great technique for making the eyes appear more round and larger because the focus falls on the centre of the eye. In this tutorial, I’ve used soft, pretty colours which make the end result quite a feminine look. You could absolutely switch up the colour combinations for something more dramatic .e.g. purple and gold? or blue and silver? The world is your oyster. Products featured: Make up For Ever Skin Equalizer Smoothing Primer Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 6 Colourpop Brow Pencil in Dope Taupe and Bangin’ Brunette Loreal Brow Artist Plumper Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer in Light Medium Honey and Medium Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Powder in Medium 2 Anastasia Beverly Hills Master Palette By Mario: Isabel, Muse, Marina, Violeta (limited edition but similar shades can be found in many retailers and brands such as Makeup Geek and MAC.

Mt Cook Lakeside Retreat, New Zealand – Mini Getaway Review

by Thu @ Face Made Up – Beauty Product Reviews, Makeup Tutorial Videos & Lifestyle

Perched on a clifftop overlooking the still blue waters of Lake Pukaki and with Aoraki Mt Cook out on the horizon, the Ashley Mackenzie Villa of Mt Cook Lakeside Retreat is the perfect place for some serious down time. Despite the owners, Luke and Kaye Paardekooper, residing in the Pukaki Homestead a mere 350 metres away, the Ashley Mackenzie Villa feels utterly secluded. The European style farmhouse accommodates up to 4 people, with two large double bedrooms connected by a spacious open plan drawing room, complete with open fireplace. Just outside of the villa, not only do you have the option to dine alfresco, you also have access to the Fanfail spa: a small workout room, a massage room (you have to book in for a massage in advance to secure the masseuse as they don’t work on site), a sauna and an outdoor hot tub (which was absolutely divine when it is so cold outside) strategically placed to make the most of the picturesque view. Breakfast provisions were home grown or locally produced and included eggs, bacon, sausage, home-made muesli (possibly one of the best mueslis I have ever had) and jams. You have the option to have Luke […]

Why I Continue Beauty Blogging As A Hobby

by noreply@blogger.com (Monika RocailleWrites) @ Rocaille Writes

I have noticed in the past few months that a lot of my favorite blogger friends decided to say goodbye to their beauty blogs. Some of them have concluded it just wasn't fun anymore, some preferred to devote their finite free time to other pursuits, some are still writing but have changed their focus from make-up and skincare. I, too have been wondering whether it's worthwhile to keep on trucking, given how sporadic my posting is now with baby Julian on board. I figured maybe I'll share my reflections about beauty blogging as a hobby in this day and age, mostly because I'd love to hear your thoughts too. So here goes.

There's a vast difference these days between professional (as in, earning revenue: be it from ads, affiliate links or sponsored posts) and personal blogs. Obviously there's a lot of grey area - many personal blogs do make a little bit of money on the side as a bonus perk to a beloved hobby, and before anyone gets their feathers ruffled, I personally have absolutely no problem in that and have myself earned a little from writing a couple sponsored posts in the past. To me it boils down to this - are you actively motivated to blog because you're counting on that revenue to pay or contribute to your bills? If so, in my mind you are indeed a professional blogger. And you may try to convince me otherwise, but I strongly believe that most professional bloggers are going to blog differently from someone who does it just for fun. I'm not saying your blogging job can't also be a passion - I belive it is for most professional bloggers - but you're not going to write in the same way when you need the money to buy your groceries versus when you're doing it just to enjoy. It has nothing to do with honesty, disclosure etc.; it's just a matter of perspective.

If you were to ask me for advice on starting a beauty blog today, I would tell you not to do it. Or I guess, scratch that, I'd ask you a question in return - what are your expectations? What are you hoping to gain from beauty blogging? Do you want exposure, an audience, growth, free products or sponsorship deals? Then probably YouTube would be a better bet, albeit bear in mind that it's going to be VERY difficult as the beauty guru market is oversaturated as it is. Do you just want to start and see how it goes, hoping to get noticed? You'll probably end up deeply disappointed. Or lastly, do you enjoy pouring words onto the (web)page, and would like to meet like-minded beauty enthusiasts? Then yes, please, go for it. I truly think this is the only reason any of us blogging hobbists are still here today.

With one caveat though. I may be wrong, but compared to when I first started Rocaille Writes, I do see much less of a community in the beauty blogosphere these days. Like I mentioned in the opening paragraph, SO MANY of us have already left the scene. I've also noticed a significant decline in commenting, and I'd be the first to blame - these days I just don't have the time to leave comments. We also don't do tags or collabs anymore. And it may be just me, but we stopped having these lengthy conversations on Twitter; I'm in fact seriously considering deleting my Twitter app, and I hardly ever check it from my desktop. The only social media outlet that still remains is Instagram, and I love our little community there, but at the same time I don't think Instagram can replace beauty blogs entirely, even now with the option of uploading multiple photos. Because while Instagram can provide all the visual content, I still think beauty blogs are primarily verbal, and it's always the writer's voice that drives me to certain blogs and not the others.

As for still feeling passionate about beauty 8 years after I clicked 'Publish' on my first post, yes, I continue to enjoy trying out and experimenting with new products. However, I often feel very ambivalent about reviewing certain brands or products. The main reason is that I don't want to be a 'beauty influencer': that is, I don't want to influence you to shop for products you don't need. I would like to think that maybe if you're already contemplating a well thought-out purchase, then my review of a product can help you make an informed decision, but I am aware that oftentimes, sharing my favorite products will entice you to spend unnecessarily in some way, and it is a form of promoting the consumerist mindset.

Secondly, the number of products I would like to share with you seems to be growing smaller and smaller. Mostly because I'm purchasing a lot less than I used to, and secondly because I'm feeling quite burnt out on reviewing PR samples (which I receive very rarely anyway). It often has nothing to do with the actual products sent for review and everything with the communication between myself and the PR company. I don't even want to say how many times my emails have gone unanswered, packages with samples ended up never being sent, how many times I was dropped by a brand for no reason - except maybe actually sharing my honest opinion, and a positive one at that? In many instances, my relationship with the PR has made me avoid a certain brand, regardless of the quality of the products. It just leaves a bad taste in your mouth, you know?

At the end of the day though, Rocaille Writes is here to stay. Primarily because for me, beauty blogging is therapeutic, and without it, I'm just a stay-at home sleep-deprived mom with stacks of dirty dishes and mounds of unwashed laundry. Hmm, maybe that came out wrong: I'm happy to be one. But I want and I need this one small creative thing for myself that is keeping a beauty blog, and I refuse to let it go. Like I said in the past in this post, Rocaille Writes may not be about reviewing the latest limited edition collection in a snap, but I have so much more than that to say. If only the days were longer, you guys!
